Yearbooks are typically dedicated to one special person in particu- 
lar, I could not dedicate the 1 994 yedrbookto one person, Through- 
out the course of the year, there have been many people who have 
stood by me and who have given me unrelentlesstime and support. 
For their extra h0lp and dedication to me and theSaxifrage, I woufd 
like to say "Thank You." I know it's not much/but 1 didn't know how 
else to thank everyone at once.

This year marks 
Fitchburg State College's 
Centennial Year. Origi- 
nally known as the 
Fitchburg Normal School 
it opened in the Fall of 
1895 at the Academy 
Street School in Fitchburg. 
John G. Thompson took 
the helm and five teach- 
ers were on the staff. It 
was a two year program 
in the beginning and its 
purpose was strictly to 
provide the community 
with teachers. 

Through the years 
Fitchburg State College 
has has grown in size and 
in purpose. Today it is a 
four year college offering 
twenty-one undergradu- 
ate programs and six 
graduate programs to a 
student body of approxi- 
mately 4,000 students. 
Over three hundred pro- 
fessors are on staff. The 
campus which was rooted 
in one building now con- 
sists of thirty plus build- 
ings and continues to ex- 
pand. 

From small beginnings 
Fitchburg State College 
has grown to giant pro- 
portions serving the 
Fitchburg community and 
the State of Massachusetts 
in a magnitude of ways.

wjSm you have formed many new relationships and have 
ffffc. learned more than just what is inside the textbooks. A 
*^* lot of learning in college goes on outside 
the classroom. This outside learning is where many 
memories are made Some memories you may want to 
forget. Yet others you will want to remember. Still, there 
will be some memories that you will remember regard- 
less of how you feel. Some of the greatest memories are 
made in college. 

In the Student Life section of the yearbook, we tried to 
include events, places, and people in which memories 
were made. We tried to emphasize all apsects of college 
life that occur outside of the classroom. 

Hopefully, when you look through your yearbook, pleas- 
ant memories of great times at Fitchburg State College will 
come soaring back to your mind. Memories Mean A Lot

FRIENDS 






meuea 



Roommate (Relationships are one of the most 
significant aspects of our college lives, beyond 
our academics. After years of living with family, 
often reigning in our own rooms, learning to get 
along with strangers in such close quarters can 
often be a real trip! It is the time in which we 
learn if we are neatniks or slobs and if we are 
socialites or soloist's. We learn how we handle 
disagreements, and there are plenty to be had! 
Do we, for instance, ignore it? Shout about it? 
Talk it out? We discover who we are as individu- 
als living in a larger society. 

Roommate relationships can range from one's 
indispensable first security blanket, to a reliable 
dining partner, and the ultimate closeness of 
friend's, Students with single rooms may enjoy 
the less "restricted environment", but they may 
alsomiss out on the many benefits of sharing 
space and getting to know someone in and out. 
We enjoy late night chats, shared telephone 
bills, movie marathons, corruptive junkfood 
binges, an extended wardrobe, and pre-party 
preparation madness These just Wouldn't be the 
same if we were alone. The experience is invalu- 
able, with lasting and memorable effects on our 
growth as mature individuals! 







SWEATING 




STRESS 










No student activity attracted a wider variety 
of participants than did intramural sports. Some 
were athletes on competing FSC teams, looking 
to retain their competitive edges during the off 
season. Many were simply looking for a bit of 
exercise, or an opportunity to sweat off some 
stress. Finally, some of us had little or no talent, 
but enjoyed the games anyway. 

For whatever reason, many participated in 
the various sports offered. The competition to 
invent the funniest (or most suggestive) team 
name began. Many hit the funny bone; many 
more appeared to be inside jokes, amusing only 
the team's members. As always, there were 
attendance problems. Fortunately, participants 
forged onward, holding pick-up games when 
not enough showed up for the scheduled con- 
tests.

YOU 



Halloween '93 in Fitchburg was a far cry from the 
holiday we celebrated as children. Not only have 
we found very different ways to celebrate the 
night of fright, but residents of the surrounding 
community did also. Various signs of the time were 
evident both on and off campus. 

On campus, we initially laughed at the Public 
Safety notices banning the wearing of Halloween 
masks or make-up on school grounds. As we 
realized the significance of this precaution - it 
would allow the authorities or crime victims to 
identify the perpetrators - the chuckles subsided 
into worried silence. Fortunately, Club Comm- 
Med was allowed its usual terrifying activities in the 
Thompson Tunnel, some invented fear to help stu- 
dents to forget their real troubles. 

Off campus, there were very few trick-or-treat- 
ers. Those who did appear came out before dusk, 
under the watchful eyes of parents or older siblings. 
The usual parties were made even more disturbing 
by the presence of low-budget costumes. Some 
sightings - a young man with a cut-up laundry 
basket around his waist and clothing draped all 
over him; a rainbow-afroed clown, weilding a plas- 
tic mallet, apparently forgetting which floor his 
apartment was on. It was a scary night, in more 
ways than one.

ACTION 






\f m 









QUAD 



Covered with grass or snow, skies rainy or 
full of sunshine, the campus quadrangle is 
always a place of congregation. Whether it 
is for a friendly game of tag football, cheering 
practice, or the playful construction of a 
snowman. In the cold or rain, that large open 
quad waits as a last obstacle between the icy 
elements and a warm DAKA dinner. 

In the Spring, it is just the place to bask in 
the sun or in the shade of a tree, as you lazily 
wait for an afternoon class or hungrily munch 
on a sandwich . Anyonejar a game of Lacross? 
Softball? Frisbee? Smiles and sunglasses 
abound as the warmer weather approaches 
and folks bring out the blankets, books and 
sunscreen. A softly speaking semicircle of 
students is not uncommon, as some of the 
more impetuous professors prefer to conduct 
class outdoors. 

New students begin their college dreams 
with "new games on the Quad" at orienta- 
tion. They continue the relationship with many 
celebrations, carefree days, and special 
events. A college career is culminated as 
each graduate sits on a folding chair at long 
awaited commencement. The Quad is the 
center of much of F.S.C's life, it is truly a symbol 
of what we are all about.

ollege certainly is a learning experience. In the previous 
section, Student Life, we have touched upon college 
experiences outside of the academics. In 
the following pages, we have tried to in- 
clude the different resources available to students for 
academic success. 

The Hammond Building is the place to go when you 
need academic assistance. This is where you will find the 
FSC library. The library not only has books, journals, and 
other reference materials you may need. It is also the place 
to go if you have a paper to type and your Smith Corona is 
on the brink. Just take the elevator to the skills center on the 
third floor and "type away" on the computers. IBM or 
Macintosh, it's your choice. 

Not only do we learn from the notes we take in class, but we 
also learn from practical experiences, too. Nothing is more 
satisfying than actually working in the field of your major. From 
internships, clinicals, and practicums to student teaching and 
lab facilities, Fitchburg State offers many opportunities for prac 
tical experience both on and off campus.

For many students, they 
are the first real glimpse of 
the real world. A true ; 
growth experience, stu- 
dents finally get to put 
hours of classroom theory 
into practice, and realize 
the full benefits of a col- 
lege education. Gaining 
confidence as profession- 
als, students begin to es- 
tablish valuable contacts 
in their chosen fields. 

Opportunities abound 
for students in every major, 
but recent seniors have 
worked as interns for David 
Letterman, The U.S. Luge 
Team, ACLU, major Boston 
hospitals and a host of 
school districts, just to 
name a few. 

Student teachers, finally 
finished with a series of ex- 
perimental steps, find that 
being up in front of a class 
as the sole person in 
charge is a lot different 
from sitting in the corner 
seat of a back row of a 
Comp class! Just a student 
teachers stick their students 
with the tough grades, stu- 
dent nurses stick real pa- 
tients with real needles for 
the first time. Time to em- 
ploy that smiling empathy 
they developed in clinical! 
Communications students 
are out there taking the 
shots as well-— video shots, 
that is! 

Now more than ever in 
the centennial year, our 
tradition for providing stu- 
dents with the best advan- 
tage for outward expan- 
sion before graduation. 
Through it all, FSC's stu- 
dents did our school proud, 
working hard to preserve 
its reputation for 1 00 Years 
of Excellence!

All-right, lets face it, the 
library has always been 
more than just a place to 
study. Countless numbers 
Of people go to the library 
everyday to do papers, and 
study for exams, yet, there 
are also those, who go to 
the library to socialize, 
people watch and maybe 
to catch a couple of ne- 
glected "zzzz's." 

How many of you have 
ever gone to the library to sit 
on the first floor just to see 
who was walking in and out 
of the library? It seems like 
the library has become yet 
another arena for the com- 
mon, college, spectator 
sport of people watching, 
Could this become the new 
trend in pastimes? 

Anotherthing,howmany 
of you have ever gone up 
to the fourth floor just to 
catch those couple of hours 
of sleep that were missed 
because of the "all-nighter" 
you pulled the night before? 

Students stated , when sur- 
veyed , that the second floor 
was among the best for 
studying along with the third . 

Being honest again, how 
many of you have ever 
stealthf ully broughtfoodinto 
the library? We can all ad- 
mit to doing it a least once. 
On this topic, don'tyou think 
that the person who can 
sneak a large pizza into the 
library past the eagle-sharp 
eyes of the library keepers, 
deserves some acknowl- 
edgment? It is same to as- 
sume that all would agree 
with this. 

So, when you want to 
catch some of those zzzz's 
or maybe the latest gossip, 
it seems like the the library is 
the place of choice.

Facing academic 
stress? Apparently, many 
students were this year, as 
the FSC computer labs on 
the third floor of the 
Hammond Building expe- 
rienced an overload. On 
average, students logged 
on for about 800 hours per 
week in the "Mac" and 
"Dec" labs. With the addi- 
tion of many new software 
packages, activities 
ranged from pounding out 
papers to making friends 
on E-Mail (and there was 
always Solitaire). 

Procrastinators paid a 
hefty price, as there was 
often a waiting list; typing 
a paper the night before it 
was due quickly became 
a thing of the past, Lurking 
in the jungle of the labs, 
the monitors would often 
feel the brunt of students' 
concerns. Several of the 
most popular expressions 
of distress included: "I 
need paper for the 
printer!", "Aw, there's a 
CLASS in there??", "Hey, 
where' d my paper go??" 
and "Do you know how to 
get into the whatcha- 
macallit??" Through all the 
grunting and groaning, stu- 
dents found a valuable re- 
source in the new labs. 




Meanwhile, students in 
need could also turn to the 
human touch for support 
through the PASS (Peer 
Assisted Study Sessions) 
Program. A total of twenty- 
two peer tutors were in 
demand for their assis- 
tance in seventeen basic 
academic courses. These 
study sessions took on a 
more serious tone than the 
work in the labs, as many 
collaborated for aca- 
demic survival. 

In conjunction with 
PASS , students who desi red 
it could receive regular or 
drop-in assistance in read- 
ing, writing or math skills, as 
well as in study strategies. 
Students could leave with 
a "warm, fuzzy feeiing" af- 
ter getting a draft of a pa- 
per read or having the 
Pthagorean Theorem fi- 
nally explained in layman's 
terms.

Fitchburg State was cul- 
turally enhanced this year 
as the international student 
program was born. 

Making the journey to 
FSC and the United States 
were students from India, 
Taiwan, The People's Re- 
public of China, Kenya, Ja- 
pan, The Netherlands, Bar- 
bados, Ireland and Swe- : 
den. Approximately sixty 
students participated in the 
program in its first year. 

Students experienced 
resident living in Building 
Two of the New Halls, Both 
FSC and these new students 
benefitted from the pro- 
gram as foreign students 
learned the ins and outs of 
American culture and FSC 
students were awarded the 
opportunity for residual cul- 
tural enrichment. 

One thing is for certain; 
both gained lasting experi- 
ences and friendships that 
will touch the future of the 
world forever!

A Lot on 
Your Mind 




n the 1994 Saxifrage Yearbook we tried to make what used 
to be called the "organizations" section a little more 
exciting than it has been in previous years. First of all, we 
decided to rename the section "People." The 
section is also subdivided into two sections - on-campus 
organizations and Greeks. We renamed the section 
because people, namely FSC students, are what make 
up and run the organizations and Greeks on Campus. 

Another change in this section is the inclusion of more 
candid pictures than what has been in previous yearbooks. 
We felt that people would prefer to see more candids than 
group shots. The majority of candids were photographs 
taken at different events that some of the organizations held. 
It is our hope that in doing this the section would be more 
interesting than usual. We hope that you find the new set up 
of the "People" section as exciting as we did putting it to- 
gether.

Student Government 
Assocation Class of 1994 

The class of 1994 is leaving Fitchburg State 
with many memories. We have enjoyed 
sponsoring a luncheon as Freshman, ice 
cream social as Soph'mores, class night in 
the pub with Kareoke as Juniors, and hot 
apple cider on the quad as Seniors. We 
also had trips to New York City and to 
Montreal, Canada, Our Senior Ball was 
held at the Westin Hotel in Boston . We want 
to wish everyone th ebest of luck in the 
furture.

Student Government 
Association Class of 1995 

The Class of 1995 this year got off to a bad 
start. They were plagued with problems. Fi- 
nally, they were set with fantastic trip to the 
Bahamas, then they lost most of their commit- 
tee due to conflicts with schedules. The Class 
of 1995 did end with a bang with a nearly full 
council. Good luck next year.

EVEN 



The TMty To Do 



w 





• i- ■ '• 



et's face it, sometimes the weekeends at Fitchburg State can be 
redundant. How many Saturday nights in a row can one go 
to the Searstown Mall or to Loews Theatre? Suprisingly, 
even the off-campus parties got old. If you 
didn't go home every weekend, it was difficult to find 
something new to do. Sure, you could have done 1 
some homework, read a book, or written a paper, but 
who wants to do school work on a Friday or Saturday 
night?. 

For the students who had worn their Blockbuster Video 
cards out, Fitchburg State brought us memorable events 
such as Homecoming, the Winter Carnival, Heritage Ball, 
and the Centennial Ball. Even those students who did not 
have a car on campus were able to enjoy these off- 
campus events, because the Campus Center provided 
transportation to all events via the Smart Van. All of these 
events attracted many students and proved to be THE THING 
TO DO.

: en{ation 





Titer prospects of beginning college 
bring a sense of nervousness to 
4 incoming freshmen and feelings 
of uncertainty to their parents. 
Both wonder what to expect. 
Colleges try to ease the fears 
and answer the concerns of both 
groups by holding an orientation 
program. 

In early June 1994, Fitchburg State invited 
incoming students and their parents to their own 
Orientation. The orientation committee consist- 
ing of friendly and knowledgeable upperclass- 
men took incoming students under their wings. 
Tours, speeches, games and other fun activities 
helped the neophytes become better ac- 
quainted with Fitchburg State College and with 
each other. 

While the students were bonding, parents were 
treated to tours and speeches by students, ad- 
ministrators and other staff. Concerns about the 
safety and well being of the students were ad- 
dressed. Services available to the students were 
highlighted. Parents went away confident that 
Fitchburg State College is concerned with each 
student and will do its best to make their years on 
campus happy and productive. It was a fun filled 
event for all involved and the start of new friend- 
ships for many.

The 1992 school year saw the debut of 
an event held at most colleges - 
Homecoming. Previous to this, 
Fitchburg State College had not 
held an annual event of this kind. 
The tremendous success of the 
first Homecoming ensured its re- 
turn in the Fall of 1993. Once 
again it was a weekend of football and fun. 
Capping the festivities was the announcement 
and crowning of the King and Queen.

inter Carnival has traditionally

held their event in December. 
The Winter Wonderland semi-for- 
mal dance was held at the Best 
Western Royal Plaza Hotel 
Fitchburg , on December 3, 1 993 . 
Keeping with the Winter Wonderland theme, the 
ballroom was decorated in blue and white. A 
mural depicting a majestic wintery scene acted 
as the focal point. Although it may have been a 
wintery setting, the night itself was filled with 
nothing but warmth, excitement and lasting 
memories.

nial Ball. This night of celebration 
was held on Friday, April 1 8, 1 994 
at the Sheraton Leominster Inn 
and Conference Center in Leominster, MA. The 
evening brought together administration, fac- 
ulty , staff , students, alumni and friends of Fitchburg

hat do some students do to keep themselves from 
becoming overwhelmed by schoolwork during the 
year? How did students take a break from the 
books? Many students found themselves playing a 
sport. Whereas, other students attended the sporting events to 
cheer on the Falcons. There were many loyal fans who 
attended almost every game "sporting" their green and 
white supporting our very own Falcons. Nothing has ever 
seemed more popular to the students than going to the 
Wallace Civic Center to attend the home games of the 
FSC Hockey team, who, yet once again, won the ECAC 
Championship. 

Men's soccer, women's soccer (new to the Fall sports 
offered at FSC), football, volleyball, cheerleading, women's 
cross-country, basketball, hockey, indoor and outdoor track 
baseball, and softball. These are the Falcon Players. 

Whatever your pleasure, be it to play the sport or to cheer 
on the team, Fitchburg State offers many choices for the 
students to become involved with FSC sports. So don't forget 
your FSC flag and green and white attire when you head down 
to the fields, rink, or to the court to cheer on the Falcon Players. 

Special thanks go out to Eric Magiera who took all of our sports 
photographs and to Dave Marsh, who gave us all of the teams 
pictures and team stats and write ups.

The tradition continues on 
the fields oftheFitchburg State 
men's soccer team. With an 
1 1 -6 overall record in 1 993, the 
Falcon booters extended the 
streak to 12 straight winning 
seasons. It also marked the 9th 
time in 10 years that FSC has 
been in double figures in victo- 
ries. 

The only downside to this sea- 
son was the fact that post- 
season play was not in the off- 
ing. Four straight wins near the 
end of the season pushed 
head coach Tony Conte's 
team record to 1 1-5. A win in 
the finale at North Adams 
could have been the differ- 
ence, but it was not to be. The 
Mohawks prevailed, 2-0, to 
keep the Falcons out of tour- 
nament play. The highlight of 
this season was not any of their 
first four M ASC AC wins. Nor was 
it the first night game in school 
history, a 4-2 win over Westf ield 
State. No, the highlight would 
have to be the emotional, su- 
perbly played 5-2 win over New 
England power WPI. The Engi- 
neers were coached by long- 
time FSC mentor Malcolm 
MacPherson, a fact which was 
certainly not lost on the Falcon 
players.

Fitchburg State turned the 
lights on for women's soccer 
for the first time in school his- 
tory this past fall. A sport grow- 
ing in popularity on campus 
and throughout the state, the 
Athletic Department was able 
to add the sport due to the 
installment of lights down at 
Robert Elliot Field. The lights al- 
lowed football, women's soc- 
cer and men's soccer each to 
have adequate usage of the 
field for practices and games. 

The biggest win of the year 
was a 2-1 upset of Roger Will- 
iams College. Roger Williams 
entered the contest with an 
11-1-1 record and figured to 
roll over the upstart Falcons. 
Fsc had other ideas. 
Boormeester scored twice to 
pave the way to an exciting 2- 
1 win. 

The tally for the squad was a 
5-9 record. Unfortunately the 
established MASCAC teams 
held FSC winless in conference 
play, the Falcons, finishing 0-6. 
In non-conference action, 
though, FSC had a winning, 5- 
3 record.

To put it bluntly, this was one 
of the best field hockey teams 
in school history. Period. 

Only the 1981 squad, which 
went 15-3-3, put up a better 
record than the 12-4 mark this 
team recorded. The Falcons 
also won their first ever outright 
MASCAC Championship this 
past fall (they tied for the title 
in 1991). 

The season started with four 
straight wins, with FSC out scor- 
ing its foes by a whopping 24- 
1 margin. A tough, 2-0 loss to 
highly tanked Southern Maine 
preceded three more wins, in- 
cluding a 5-0 pasting of 
Westfield State. 

The only thorn in the side of 
the Falcons in 1993 was 
Bridgewater State, the only 
MASCAC team to beat them. 
It was the Bears who snapped 
the three game streak. But the 
loss did not slow down this 
tough, aggressive Falcon 
squad. Salem State, Worces- 
ter State and Framingham 
State were each overpowered 
as FSC finished their MASCAC 





; 





season with a 4-1 record. 

With a 12-3 regular season 
record, FSC was primed for 
post-season play. They ac- 
cepted an invitation to the 

104 



MAIAW Tournament, where 
they were seeded second to 
Bridgewater State.

Head coach Mike 
Woessner's first season did not 
quite turn out as he and his 
Falcons had hoped. But do 
not think an 0-8-1 season 
leaves him discouraged about 
the future. On the contrary, he 
and the players are already 
anxious for the 1 994 season to 
begin and to get the program 
turned around. 

The season started out on a 
bright note at home against 
Western New England. The 
Falcons settled for a 12-12 tie 
when their 45 yard field goal 
attempt with 18 seconds left 
traveled 45 yards. 

The next game was equally 
heart-wrenching as Fram- 
ingham nailed a field goal with 
16 seconds left to down the 
Falcons 17-14. The third game 
was another heartbreaker as 
Westfield State, ranked num- 
ber one in New England, 
squeaked out a 14-7 win over 
FSC. 

Six of the nine games were 
decided by 12 points or less, 
The young Falcons, like the 
New England Patriots this year, 
came painfully close but could 
not quite get over the hump.

They did it the hard way, but 
they did it indeed. A thrilling 
five set victory over Salem State 
propelled the Falcons to a 
three-way share of the 
MASCAC Championship. Sa- 
lem State and Bridgewater 
State, who also posted 3-1 
conference records, were the 
others to gain a piece of the 
trophy. 

Following a three set loss to 
Franklin Pierce, FSC had lost 
four straight and was sitting 
with a disappointing 5-12 
record. A conference cham- 
pionship did not appear to be 
part of the plan. But the skid 
ended with consecutive 
MASCAC wins over 
Framingham State and 
Worchester State and sud- 
denly FSC was back in the hunt. 
They finished the season win- 
ning five of their last seven 
outings to end up with a re- 
spectable 10-14 season 
record. 

In the MASCAC Tournament 
at season's end, FSC ad- 
vanced to the semifinals. 
Bridgewater was the final ob- 
stacle. In an intense, five set 
battle, thefinal game of which 
went 16- 14, the Bears prevailed 
to end FSC's season.

They had come so close that 
last couple of years. In 1992 a 
mere point separated the lady 
harriers from the Champion- 
ship. This fall, however, they 
would not be denied. 

Coach Jim Jellison's crew 
was loaded this fall. With two 
time defending champion 
Melissa Lombard, and past All- 
MASCAC performers Tina 
Rouine and Coreen White, 
leading the way, FSC was the 
prohibitive favorite in the 
Championship Meet. 

As it turned out this trio was 
just the beginning of the prob- 
lem for former champion 
Westfield State and the others. 
Lombard was again FSC's top 
performer, taking third overall, 
covering the 5000 meters in 
19:37. 

The final tally showed FSC 
with a mere 30 points. Second 
place Westfield State could 
barely see the Falcon spikes in 
the distance with a total of 53 
points. 

They had done it. The Fal- 
cons took their first MASCAC 
title since 1 988, the last of their 
three straight championships. 
The victory did not go unno- 
ticed in cross country circles. 
The following week FSC was 
ranked 9th in New England, a 
ranking they would keep for 
the rest of the season.

After a brief glimpse of middle class 
life last season, the FSC hockey team 
regained its vast fortune of success in 
1993-94. With their 18-5-1 record and 
their ability to peak at tournament 
time, the Falcons captured theirfourth 
ECAC title in the past five years. This 
time it was the ECAC North-Central- 
South Championship. 

Last year, behind 17 freshmen, 
head coach Dean Fuller's rebuilding 
efforts ended up in an 1 1-10-2 record 
and elimination in the first round of 
the playoffs. 

This time around, experience 
payed off. 

The Falcons started the season as 
hot as you can get, losing only one of 
their first 13 games (and that loss was 
to Division 1 UMass-Amherst). That 
streak was highlighted by a 5-1 win 
over ECAC Central Champs, UMass- 
Dartmouth, plus consecutive overtime 
wins against Roger Williams (5-4) and 
Southern Maine (3-2). 

But just as FSC thought they might 
cruise through the regular season, 
things got a bit tougher. A 1-3-1 skid, 
including an eye-opening 6-2 loss to 
Assumption, showed the Falcons that 
they would be in for a dogfight. 

In the third to last game, FSC 
clinched first place in the ECAC 
North's regular season with an 8-7 win 
over Nichols. Then, in the season fi- 
nale, the 7-5 win over Framingham 
State clinched the Falcons of the top 
seed in the playoffs. 

The top seed is assured home ice 
throughout the playoffs- key to a FSC 
team which has not lost a home play- 
off game since 1991. 

Round one found Bentley to be 
the foe. Bentley ventured into the 
playoffs for the first time in ten years 
and found that experience is a valu- 
able commodity. FSC rolled, 10-4, 
behind a pair of goals from both Steve 
Lowney and Mark Pillsbury. 

The first playoff shutout in FSC his- 
tory followed as freshman Aaron Abitz 
put the clamps on Plymouth State for 
a 6-0 victory. Abitz, who was hot 
throughout the entire tournament, 
turned aside 38 Panther shots enroute 
to the win. Lowney, the 1992 ECAC 
North Championship Game MVP, 
continued his splendid post season 
play with two more goals. Freshman 
Dan Genatossio also added a pair. 

The Championship Game brought 
the Assumption Greyhounds to the 
Civic Center. Remember, Assump- 
tion whipped FSC earlier in the season 
6-2. But that was not the playoffs. 

In a thriller, it was Abitz (32 saves), 
Genatossio (goal) and sophomore 
Steve Baldasaree (2 goals) who came 
through big for FSC. But the star of 
stars this night was junior Matt Park. 



114 




Park played the best game of his out- 
standing career, scoring the three 
goal hat trick to give the Falcons a 6- 
4 win and the championship. Two of 
Park's tallies were of the shorthanded 
variety. Deservedly so, the junior was 
named the tournament's MVP for his 
brilliant effort. 

For the 1 993-94 season the big gun 
for FSC was senior forward Steve 
Loowney. Lowney led the team in 
scoring for the third straight season 
(27 goals, 24 assists for 51 points). Not 
only was he the best player on the 
best team - he was also the best player 
in the league, being named ECAC 
North MVP. Lowney finished his amaz- 
ing career with 75 goals (sixth in FSC 
history), 61 assists (8th) and 136 points 
(7th).

Along with Lowney, two other play- 
ers earned All-ECAC honors. Senior 
defenseman Scott Livingston ended 
his career as one of the best 
defensemen in school history by mak- 
ing the ECAC All-Star team. Sopho- 
more Bill Mastrangelo, who trailed only 
Lowney for the second straight year 
with 12 goals and 29 assists for 41 
points, was also recognized by the 
ECAC. 

The Falcons were a balanced 
team, enjoying double digit scoring 
seasons from 14 players. Five of those 
tallied at least 30 points. Genatossio 
(23+18=41), Park (18+21=39) and 
Baldassare (13+1 9=32) joined Lowney 
and Mastrangelo in this group. 

Livingston headed a very strong 
defensive corps which included fel- 
low seniors Casey Nelson (1 + 12=13) 
and Brian Mclnis (1+4=5). Sophomore 
Pat Turner (3+16=19) and D.J. Conte 
(8+10=1 8), who will lead the way next 
year, were also outstanding. 

In net it was Abitz who was hot at 
the end, but junior Rob Horn did his fair 
share as well. Abitz finished at 1 2-2- 1 
with a 3.75 goals against average, 
while Horn was 6-3 with a 4.73 GAA.

It started out so promising. 
The Falcons won four of their 
last five games of the first se- 
mester to head to the holidays 
with a 4-4 record. Those four 
wins already matched the win 
total of the previous year. 

Little did they know that the 
108-102 win over Anna Maria 
on December 5 would be the 
last of the season. 

Over the break the team 
was decimated with injuries 
and academic problems 
which completely threw their 
successful lineup out of align- 
ment. 

The adjusted roster was 
never able to find the right 
formula to get back on track. 
Head Coach Bob Bonci 
struggled to put together a 
successful plan, but it just did 
not work. 

The end result was another 
four win season- 4-21. The Fal- 
cons finished 0-12 in MASCAC 
play and were eliminated in 
the first round of the confer- 
ence tournament. 




5/ 




The unquestioned leader of 
the team was junior guard Ri- 
chard "Mokie" Harding. 
Harding was superb through- 
out the season, leading the 
team in scoring (19.3 ppg), 
assists (3.5 apg) and steals (2.0 
spg). He scored 464 points on 
the season and finished 
among the MASCAC leaders 
in scoring and assists. Harding 
will head into his senior season 
needing just 95 points to reach 
1000 for his illustrious career. 
He has established himself as 
one of the premier players in 
the MASCAC. 

Senior John Browne, who 
plays both guard and forward, 
had his best season with 6.1 
points per game and 2.7 re- 
bounds an outing. The four 
year player posted his career 
high with 23 against Worcester 
State. 

A pair of junior forwards 
proved to be formidable forces 
underthe boards. Transfer Eric 
Freund hauled down a team 
high 7.4 rebounds per game 
while trailing only Harding at 
14.1 ppg. Nick Chareas, mean- 
while, added 6.8 rebounds and 
9.0 points a game.

They lost four starters and six 
of their top eight scores. They 
even lost their head coach. 
Yet after a very shaky start, the 
women's basketball team had 
to be pleased with the season 's 
outcome. 

Rookie head coach Lisa 
Valardi's team ended up 6-15 
overall and 4-8 in MASCAC 
play. But that was after a 1-8 
start. The Falcons went 5-7 
over the final twelve games. 

The team highlight had to 
be the 51-49 upset win over 
North Adams - a win which 
knocked the Mohawks out of 
third place in the league. Jun- 
ior Allyson McGinn had 24 
points that game. Or maybe it 
was the 70-68 road win over 
Bridgewater State, with 
McGinn pouring in 18 with 16 
rebounds. Or perhaps the 51 - 
46 upset of Nichols behind 
sophomore Becky Robidoux's 
career day of 1 9 points and 1 9 
rebounds. 

Regardless, the squad will 
be losing only two seniors and 
should have a wealth of expe- 
rience back next season. 

Unfortunately, one of the 
seniors to go will be Kathleen 
May - one of the greatest 
guards ever to wear the green 
and gold. May was selected 
to the All-MASCAC Second 
Team for the third straight year 
after posting the best season 
of her outstanding career. This 
year she averaged 10.7 points 
(Career high), 4.9 rebounds 
(career high), 3.5 steals (ca- 
reer high) and 4.9 assists (sec- 
ond most) per game. 

May is the top playmaker in 
FSC history. She is the only 
player with over 40 career as- 
sists - 459 (actually, she is the 
only player with over 300 as- 
sists). Heraverageof4.7assists 
per game over her four year 
career is also tops in FSC his- 
tory. 

Aside from all her records, 
perhaps the most impressive 
statistic is that she never missed 
a single game in four years. 




Fellow senior Nannette Bradley also 
had her best season. She averaged 7.2 
points and 2.1 rebounds per game. The 
fourth year player had her career high of 
20 points against Curry. 

McGinn, a junior, had another huge 
all-around season, leading the team in 
scoring (11.4 ppg) and in rebounding 
(10.9 per game). Sophomore Becky 
Robidoux was probably the team's most 
improved player as she tallied the 10.2 
ppg while hauling down 8.4 rebounds 
per game.

Not since 1 980 has a Falcon 
baseball team won this many 
games. Fitchburg State ended 
the season as one of the hot- 
test teams in New England, 
winning 14 of their final 18 
games to finish at 1 5-1 7 on the 
year. 

Head coach John 
McGuirk'steam also ended up 
7-3 in MASCAC play to tie 
ECAC runner-up Bridgewater 
State for second place in the 
conference. This marks FSC's 
highest finish ever in MASCAC 
play. 

Unfortunately the season did 
not start as it ended. The 
team's annual pilgrimage to 
Florida resulted in a 1 - 1 record 
to start the campaign. FSC 
then dropped their first three 
contests up North to find them- 
selves looking at a l-13record. 

But then something clicked. 
Worcester State fell, 4-1. New 
England College was disposed 
of, 12-5. Plymouth State 
dropped a doubleheader. 
Suddenly FSC had won four 
straight. 

The pitching had solidified, 
the batting averages began 
to climb and the leather was 
softening on the gloves. 

The Falcons posted wins in 
four of five games, including a 
doubleheader sweep of 
Westfield State. After losing to 
New Hampshire College, then 
North Adams State, the Fal- 
cons would not feel the sting 
of defeat again. 

A 1 2-9 win over North Adams 
kicked off a string of six straight 
wins to finish the season. The 
final game was a thrilling 9-8 
win over Worcester State which 
gave Fitchburg State a tie in 
the battle for the Sterling Cup. 

The winning pitcher that 
game was senior Jason 
Donovan, who capped off 
one of the most successful all- 
around seasons ever encoun- 
tered by a Falcon. Donovan

went 7-2 this year, tying Bruce 
Wahl's (1980) single season 
record for victories. He posted 
a 2.90 earned run average and 
won his final four decisions. 
Donovan, who was named the 
team's MVP, also batted .326 
with 18 RBI, 21 runs scored and 
3 homers. He was named All- 
MASCAC First Team as a 
pitcher - only the second FSC 
pitcher to be so honored. 

On the hill FSC also enjoyed 
strong seasons from sopho- 
more Paul Reggio (4-3, 5.28 
ERA), senior Lou Marguerite (1- 
0,4. 1 7 ERA) and freshman Ryan 
Pavao (2-5, 5.73 ERA). 

Offensively the Falcons had 
a very balanced attack with 
seven players batting at least 
.282. Sophomore Steve 
Baldasaree led the team in 
seven offensive categories - 
average (.365), hits (38), RBI 
(27), runs (22), doubles (11), 
homeruns (5), and slugging 
percentage (.635). 

Baldasaree was the other Fal- 
con besides Donovan to earn 
All-MASCAC First Team honors. 

Senior Dave Hebert, a trans- 
fer from U Mass-Lowell, batted 
.333 with 13 RBI and 19 runs in 
just 21 games played. Fresh- 
man shortstop Sean Darcy 
overcame a slow start to bat 
.319 with 22 runs and a team 
high 13 stolen bases. 

Ron Taupier, a sophomore 
catcher, hit .313 while playing 
a terrific backstop. Junior sec- 
ond baseman, Mike DeCicco 
was easily the team's most im- 
proved player, batting .282 
with 12 runs and 13 RBI. 

Two players completed their 
four year FSC careers in style. 
Joe Moran, a four year starter, 
had his best season with a .291 
average, 12 runs scored and 
13 RBI. Matt Fallon, a three 
year starter, batted .229 with 
15 runs and 1 1 RBI. He will be 
vividly remembered for his 
spectacular diving catches in 
centerfield.

Although they did not quite 
achieve the success the base- 
ball team did, the FSC softball 
season did strike noticeable 
parallel to their male counter- 
parts. 

Like the baseball team, the 
softballers endured a terrible 
start to the season. After ten 
games the team had yet to 
win a ball game (likewise, the 
baseball team started out 1- 
10). 

But after scoring just 1 9 runs 
in those first ten games, the 
Lady Falcons absolutely ex- 
ploded. The next four games, 
three of which were victories, 
produced a whopping 55 runs. 
FSC demolished Mass. Mari- 
time 221-2, whipped Endicott 
1 1 -7 and overcame Westfield 
State, 13-11 in 10 innings. The 
lone down side to that streak 
was a 20-10 loss to Westfield. 

Two more victories, against 
highly regarded Anna Maria 
and Rivier, followed, giving 
coach Ken Ellis' squad five wins 
in six starts. 

FSC would win only two of 
their last eight, however, to fin- 
ish the season at 7-1 7. Two of 
those losses were near major 
upsets. The Falcons lost 9-7 to 
ECAC runner-up North Adams 
State, then ended the season 
with a heartbreaking 2-1 loss to 
Bridgewater State, who ad- 
vanced to the NCAA Softball 
World Series. 

The future is bright for FSC 
softball as only three seniors 
graduate from the team. Fresh- 
man Laurie McNaught was 
splendid, batting .360 with 17 
RBI and 14 runs scored. She also 
belted 4 doubles, 4 triples, and 
a homer to post a .560 slugging 
pet. This terrific effort earned 
her a spot on the All-MASCAC 
Honorable Mention squad. 

Another freshman, Dianne 
Horwath, hit .254 with 1 6 RBI and 
9 runs scored. Two other fresh- 
men starters, Deana Lukas and 
Kathy Herriott scored 1 4 and 1 2 
runs, respectively.

Junior Kris Theriault has 
scaled many heights in his 
three year career at FSC. This 
spring he topped the Mt. 
McKinley of Division III Track 
and Field. 

With an amazing throw of 
236'6", Theriault won the NCAA 
Division III National Champion- 
ship in the javelin. That throw 
not only won the meet, Put 
shattered the national Division 
III record as well. The effort 
was over 20 feet better than 
the second place finisher this 
year. 

Theriault became FSC's first 
national champion since 1 977. 

After earning All-America 
status the past two years, 
Theriault won his first national 
crown. He is the first Falcon 
male to earn three All-America 
certificates in field events. 

Theriault also won the New 
England All-Division title, the 
New England Division III crown 
and the MASCAC Champion- 
ship. He set meet records in 
the Division III meet and at the 
MASCACs. In the latter event 
he was named the Most Out- 
standing Performer for tossing 
a meet and Elliot Field record 
of220'5 1/2. 

Although Theriault was the 
most visible member of Coach 
Sheehan's squad, it was cer- 
tainly not a one man team. In 
fact, he was not even the only 
javelin thrower to make head- 
lines. At the MASCAC Cham- 
pionships sophomore Jim 
Darcangelo finished second. 
Darcangelo also finished sixth 
at the New England Division Ills 
to earn All-New England sta- 
tus. 

Sophomore triple jumper 
Jason Desmarais broke out of 
his indoor track slump to earn 
two championships of his own . 
Desmaraisjumped 44'0 1 /2 in 
the MASCACs to win that 
event. A week later he cov- 
ered 45'2 1/2, his best jump of 




124 




the year, to win the New En- 
gland III Championship. 

Also leading the team were 
Scott McCaPe, Brad Durbin, 
Frank Legros and Derek 
Valcourt.

They were the sweetest 3000 
meters in recent memory for 
the Fitchburg State women's 
track team. The prospect of 
winning their fourth consecu- 
tive MASCAC Championship 
was looking grim that sunny 
afternoon at Robert Elliot Field. 
The favorite, Westfield State, 
appeared to be in control of 
the meet, having led most of 
the afternoon. 

The Falcon trio of Coreen 
White, Tina Rouine and Laurie 
Pouliot lined up for the start of 
the 3000 meter race - the sec- 
ond to the last event of the 
day - with dominance on their 
minds. And dominant they 
were. Their race gave FSC a 
lead they would not relinquish, 
holding on for a 1 00-97 victory. 

Fitchburg State remains the 
only MASCAC Women's Track 
Champion ever. The meet has 
been conducted for four years 
and the Falcons have pre- 
vailed each time. 

The heroines were many this 
day with sophomores shining 
in the limelight. Sophomore 
Nia Boudreau competed in 
eight events, placing in six. 
Sophomores Wendy Gagliani 
and Michelle Holloway were 
the only winners besides White.

SENIORS 

A Little Touch of Class 




enior Year 1994 -a time of transition. As quickly as it began, 
it has come to an end, our years in college will become 
only a memory. Fitchburg State has prepared us, as we 
have prepared ourselves to make a differ- 
ence. We now share something in common, yet are 
still so different and individual. 

As Senior Editors, we hope there will be something 
for everyone in this section. Special Thanks to those 
who helped make this section possible: Andrea DeFusco 
Stacy lovino and Julie Bussiere. 

GOOD LUCK TO THE CLASS OF 1 994 - we're leaving FSC 
with a "little touch of class".

On April 23, 1994 the 
Senior Class came to 
gether to enjoy an 
evening of dinner and danc- 
ing at the Copley Plaza, 
Weston Hotel in Boston, MA. 
The comedian set the mood 
for an evening of laughter and 
fun. The seats were emptied 
as the dance floor was filled, 
when the D.J. played the all 
ti me fa vorite h it " Electric Slide " . 
When the clock struck mid- 
night, the couples dispersed 
to enjoy the rest of the evening.

A message of hope amid the horror 

Things aren't easy for students who 
graduate from college these days. A tight 
job market. Difficult decisions. So much to 
think about. 

But the 977 students who sat on the 
quadrangle on this beautiful May day 
couldn't help but feel deeply fortunate as 
they listened to exiled Haitian President 
Jean-Betrand Aristide talk of "the horror" 
that is his homeland. 

Violence and repression. The coup, the 
killings, the desperate refugees. 

He also spoke of the troubles in South 
Africa, Rawanda and Bosnia, and sadly 
noted, "World attention doesn't always 
mean world involvement. Nor does it al- 
ways guarantee a solution. Sometimes the 
world looks, and other times it looks away," 

His words were particularly pointed, given 
the heightened interest in US policy toward 
Haiti at the time of Aristide's visit. 

He urged strict enforcement of the inter- 
national embargo and decried the treat- 
ment of the Haitian boat people. 

Despite the talk of politics and suffering, 
however, Aistide's primary message was 
one of hope. 

"It is the duty of all good citizens to work 
to improve every community to which a 
citizen belongs," he told them. "All of us are 
citizens of the world. Our challenge as 
global citizens is to build a more hopeful 
future. The spirit of global citizenship. ..is not 
a matter of being a member and loyal 
participant in a particular community. In- 
stead, it is feeling, thinking, and acting for 
the sake of all human beings, and above all 
for those most vulnerable and disadvan- 
taged."
